Ralphs, Food 4 Less/Foods Co. partner with City of Hope to sponsor Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at the Clash

As Food 4 Less/Foods Co. and Ralphs Grocery Company are featured on Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s wrapped car for the NASCAR Cup Series exhibition race at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in partnership with the City of Hope, the grocers also gear up for the Ralphs Pharmacy/Kroger Health mobile health clinic Team Tune-Up tour in Southern California during February.

“All of us at Ralphs and Food 4 Less/Foods Co. are excited to partner with 2023 Daytona 500 Champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and the No. 47 Camaro team,” said Salvador Ramirez, corporate affairs manager for Ralphs and Food 4 Less/Foods Co. “Best of all, we’re using our partnership with Ricky to make a difference in the community by encouraging our communities to check in with their own well-being by bringing healthcare services directly to them with our Kroger Health Team Tune-Up mobile unit during the month of February, while supporting the City of Hope’s programs.”

Stenhouse Jr., who is a three-time NASCAR Cup Series winner, is getting behind the program and the wheel of the No. 47 Food 4 Less/Ralphs Camaro featuring City of Hope to shed more light on their fight to save lives and how fans can help ahead of the race. The wrapped car will also circuit during the mobile health clinic tour this February.

“Throughout the season, The Kroger Co. banners, like Food4Less and Ralphs for example, passionately contribute to the community and create unique ways using our racing assets to reach millions of brand loyal consumers,” said Stenhouse Jr. “The work that both retailers have done with City of Hope to raise millions and millions of dollars to support research, treatment and education is astounding. We’re humbled to be a part of this program.”

The unveiling of the No. 47 show car coinciding with a donation to the City of Hope will kick off the Ralphs Pharmacy/Kroger Health Team Tune-Up tour, which offers vaccinations and free health screenings to Southern California residents and business partners.

“At City of Hope, we know that patients with cancer do not have time to wait,” said Joe Watterson, Vice President, Corporate Philanthropy at City of Hope. “Generous support from Ralphs and Food4Less/Foods Co., our long-standing philanthropic partners, allow world-class researchers to turn scientific breakthroughs into lifesaving treatments with great speed. We are grateful and excited featured in this NASCAR event to help raise awareness of the life-saving work at City of Hope.”

Ralphs Pharmacy/Kroger Health, the healthcare division of The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR), is committed to driving engagement in preventative and interventive care. The “Team Tune-Up” mobile health clinic provides a way to receive vaccines and free health screenings while on-site at various events throughout Southern California. Customers can also learn more about filling prescriptions and ways to save with Kroger Health Savings Club (www.krogerhealthsavings.com).

Tune in on Sunday, February 4th, for the 150-Lap Clash at the Coliseum beginning at 8 PM ET on FOX, MRN and SIRIUSXM (Ch. 90).
